The recipe came (I think) from my cousin - at least that what I have on the recipe, but with a question mark...

And, so easy!!
Sweet Garlic Chicken

1 tsp salt
2 tsp pepper
1 Tbs dried basil

2. Line a sheet wfoil and spray

3. Season chix with salt, pepper and basil and place on b. sheet

4. Heat olive oil till shimmering; add minced garlic and cook until soft & fragrant, about 2 min.

5. Remove from heat and stir in b. sugar until smooth

6. Evenly spread sugar mixture over the top of each piece of chicken.

7. Bake for 30-40 minutes.

I made it exactly as written except I had 5 thighs and I'm sure glad I did. Today, I stuck the l/o Mahi-Mahi in the freezer and I'm making my pizza out of some of the chicken.

That looks so tasty!! I make chicken thighs almost weekly here. Are those boneless/skinless or not?

Wow, that looks and sounds delicious. Thanks for posting!

No Barbara, the whole kit-and-caboodle - skin on, bone in. But, next time I will remove the skin, but I do prefer the bone in.

Cook once - eat twice -
I kept 3 thighs out for dinner tomorrow and used the other 2 for pizza which was outstanding.

Pizza dough, marinara, Mozz, the chicken, gruyere, candied jalapenos, Parm - bake and top with green onions. Simple but so delicious.

Great!! This week I'm doing Pan-Roasted Chicken Thighs where you get the skin super-super crispy. I'll check your recipe out next week!

Sweet Garlic Chicken - dish #2 - Oh my, don't we all love cook once/eat twice? This pasta with the chicken was just excelllent!! Important note: when you make the chicken be sure to keep the jus in the pan. I tossed it with the garlic linguine when we served with the chicken and it was wonderful!! Wine? Sara's Harbinger La Petite Fleur!! Oustanding. (blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, & Riesling
